The Playhouse School offers affordable, professionally-taught classes for acting students year-round. Join us to explore the fun, challenging, delightful world of theater. We’ll explore what it means to communicate, share and listen, develop characters, explore the core of the story, and develop the craft of acting in age-appropriate, small class groups with performances at the end of each session.
